Conclusion: Thoroughly satisfying, if you are looking for a mindless distraction for an hour at a time and aren’t bothered by the general lack of depth, Zombie Driver is worth a look. If not, you’ll want to pass on this one. My Rating: 6/10 – decent.
Excerpt: You know, in real life driving your car at high speed into a horde of the walking dead would be a terrible idea. You’d smash up your bonnet, ruin the paintwork, get covered in entrails, and on top of that you’d be picking strands of pulped zombie testicle out of the glove-box for months. Not to mention the points on your license.
Excerpt: Zombie Driver was originally released for PC via Steam in December 2009, but developer Exor Studios has brought the game back in the enhanced Zombie Driver HD for PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE Arcade, PC and Android. The new release features crisp high definition graphics and new game modes for even more carnage than the original title.
Excerpt: If inflicting wanton property damage while firing rockets at other cars sounds like a good time to you, then adding zombies should make it a great time…at least in theory. Some of Zombie Driver HD ’s drawbacks have to do with its PC roots (its non-HD predecessor came out in 2009). An extreme overhead, top-down view and tiny zombies look just fine on a monitor that’s a foot from your face, but on a regular TV — even in HD — the impact of running over the lumbering dead...
Pros: + Slamming through zombies and destructible environments., + Blood Race mode is wild, chaotically good fun.
Cons: ? How do you release a racing game without multiplayer?!
Summary: Zombie Driver HD plays out like a cross between Grand Theft Auto 2 and Choplifter. Players race around the city picking up survivors and avoiding the zombie hordes. It's a fun game with a surprising amount of content for ten dollars. On the other hand, the missions become a bit tedious by the end. Zombie Driver HD is worth a look! This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.
Summary: Zombie Driver HD je sice jen lehce nadprůměrnou hrou, která ovšem nemá na poli Xbox LIVE Arcade větší konkurenci a s klidem v duši bych ji doporučil všem, kteří mají rádi zombie a destruction derby závody. Hra navíc stojí příjemných 800 MS points / 10 eur (díky bohu, že ne 1200 MS points / 15 eur jak se to stalo v poslední době zvykem) a věřím, že své fanoušky si najde.
